Is this different in Solidworks 2011? In Solidworks 2010 I would sketch on a plane then create my geometry and then exit the sketch to use the Extrude commant under Features. Then select the sketch and exturde it to create my solid. Now in Solidworks 2011 when I create my sketch and exit, I lose my sketch. For me to extrude I have to be in the sketching mode and then select features and then select Exturde/Boss command to create my solid. Does anyone else have this problem?
